I've spent the last several days having heart to heart conversations with local business owners, and while all of us have been adversely affected, we know some of you are really struggling right now. Although this is an anxious time for many of us who are trying to figure out how to handle this current situation, we are so fortunate to have leaders who are willing to step up and help.
BBB has partnered with 5 local Business Coaches who have agreed to provide some free coaching /brainstorming/strategic planning sessions to assist our businesses who are struggling through this crisis.
I am so grateful for these gentlemen who have offered to give their time to help out during these difficult times.

Remember, these wonderful coaches also have businesses to run, so please consider them also for workshops, strategic planning sessions, issue processing sessions, and keynote speakers for your teams and for upcoming events.
